are as you know, the devil is always in the details. who is going to be treasury secretary? that will go a long way determining how the fiscal cliff deficit issue is sorted out. odds-on favorite is the chief of staff, people say the simpson-bowls tax reform plan is still in the running. if he gets it, you will see an interesting negotiation. bowls is probably the most favored democrat in the house and someone republicans feel is serious about a comprehensive tax reform. if the president goes bowls, two interesting. if he goes with jack lew, who is outside favorite, is much more partisan liberal. that adds another dynamic. the conversations that are going on right now. they are not acrimonious and the obama administration to say we are serious about dealing with the deficit and the fiscal cliff, we're not just talking about raising taxes, we're talking about it in the long-term. now we just have to wait for the details. connell: basically what you are saying, sounds like we will see a president that sounds more simpson-bowls like, moving more to the middle. >> i don't know. if you're aski
